Cleaning computer boards after fire damage ?
Posted on 1998-01-12
After a fire ravaged my flat, my computer, which has been spared by the flames, still has been "damaged" by smoke and ashes.
I'm looking for a product I could use to "wash" clean the motherboard, extension boards, memory chips, processor etc.
I just wanna be sure it won't damage the boards' circuitry.
One last important note : the product should be easy for me to find : I'm living in Europe (Belgium), so keep this in mind when answering, please ...
Also, there would be a 50-point bonus if anyone with similar experience could give me some hints about what to do and especially what NOT to do when trying to restart the machine after clean-up. I mean, how can I avoid damaging computer parts when powering up first time, what would be the minimum components necessary for a boot, etc.
Thanks in advance for any help,
